You want light? Hundred watters will set you back a cool fifty bucks come January first.
That’s when the government mandate goes into effect prohibiting the sale of anything other than those compact fluorescent types with a little bit of poison inside. The new bulbs will last 3 times as long and cost 22 times as much as the incandescent ones you are now using.
The good news is 75 watters will go on sale for 5 dollars less. So 45 dollars for 75 watts is 60 cents for a watt. That’s 20 percent more per watt, and for what?, for 25 less watts, that’s what.
Is this really necessary? What will they want to control next, toilet paper?
